Daniel Cormier Withdraws From USADA Testing Pool
By FCF staff
Daniel Cormier recently confirmed that he’s hanging up the gloves, and now the legend’s also leaving USADA’s testing pool.
Leading up to Cormier’s third bout with heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic last month, “DC” repeatedly said it would be his last bout. But, not everyone was convinced that the former champ-champ would retire.
Following the latest Dana White Contender Series event on Tuesday, however, White reported the following (quote via MMA Junkie).
“He told us today to take him out of USADA and take him out of the rankings,” White said at the DWCS 31 post-fight news conference. “Doesn’t get any more official than that.”
“I had such a great time with him, but he’s such a great commentator, so, he’ll still be around and he’ll be with this company forever, so it’s not like we’re losing him and I’ll never see him again.”
The 41-year-old Cormier finished his storied career armed with a record of 22-3, with 1 no-contest. If Cormier did decide to fight again, he would have to notify USADA six months in advance of his desired, return date.
